ANH Classes

(Latest Revision: 12/30/17)

An isolated home to fiercely clannish peoples, Northwall’s cultural dividing lines are clearly drawn.

While visitors to settled communities can generally depend on traditions of hospitality and expect to be treated well, tribal peoples are usually less welcoming.

A character’s race determines how long a PC must acclimate themselves to another culture in order to embrace that culture’s class paths. A small handful of paths are not learned from cultural influence but accessed through heritage; these are limited strictly to the permitted race(s).

The relationship between class, path, and race is detailed below. Class paths not listed are not currently accessible in Northwall.
